Default Motherboard speed

Okay, I have a question. If bits are transferred as bytes, which is 8 bits in number, how is a bus speed of 533 possible? My understanding is that the bytes are transferred at the same time, I don't see how a partial byte can be communicated, and 533 isn't a multiple of eight...

Hope this isn't a duplicate post, I got an error.

Default Re: Motherboard speed

the bus speed is measured in mhz not bits or bytes
